If it's under the tray then it must be a lubricant for the tray gears... dont wipe it off.

Have a daenyx dv-833 dvd player

Good Morning,

Your connection is very easy so we should not have a problem isolating the problem.
We just have to go slow step by step.

First lets just check the Yellow cable just to be on the safe to side sure it is connected properly on the back of the DVD player and on the Televison.

Second, If the connectionn is secured. Turn the DVD player on, make sure you do not have a disc in the tray then turn the DVD player off.

Make sure the battery on the remote control is a fresh new battery (process of eliminattion).
Hold the remote control in front of the DVD front panel.
Turn the DVD player on with the remote control. Look on the front panel of the DVD player, it should read no disc. Press the Pro.Scan button "once". (Have you notice a flickering on the Television Screen).

If no flickering on the TV screen, press the Pro.Scan button again, ( this will be the second time). Have you notice the flickering?

If not, press the Pro.Scan button again ( third time). Have you notice a flickering on the TV screen?

Did you not notice on the LED of the DVD player if it read anything when you pressed the Pro.Scan button?
Try the above procedure again if your picture did not resume. If the picture resume in black and white, do not press the Pro.Scan button anymore.

Let me know the outcome up to this point.

Not playing

im not sure if this is going to help, but it helped when mine wouldnt start. take off the top frame of the dvd player so you can see part of the disk tray. put the dvd in and if you notice that its not spinning, then try spinning it to the left with your finger.

When I try to watch ANY DVD, after loading, the screen says "bad disc"

Sounds like you need to clean the optical lens on the inside of your player. You can do this the easy way and purchase a dvd cleaning disk or you can remove the cover of the dvd player, there will be a couple of screws on the side and a couple on the back. Once you have done that, open the cd tray and unplug your player from the outlet. Now take some cu-tips and a small amount of rubbing alcohol and lightly dip a cu tip in and look inside your player. You will see a small glass bubble inside the middle of the carriage that will be the optical laser reader. Gently swab off the optical lens a couple of times with each cu tip dipped in a small amount of alcohol. It would a good idea to also purchase a can of compressed air and blow your system out to make sure it is clean of dust and dirt. Make sure you blow the system out before cleaning the optical lens. Let dry for about 2 minutes before plugging back in and replacing the cover. Now try and play your dvds. You might also want to clean each dvd before placing them in your player as an added help. I hope this helps and let me know if you are still having problems because it could be a defective part and I will be able to let you know what it is with a few more questions and the answers you give.

If you do not mind please rate my help, I would really appreciate it. Thanks

DVD player reads no disc. Was working just fine earlier today

Try these solutions: 1. Check to make sure the discs you are using are not scratched or dirty, if so clean them with a soft cloth and a small amount of rubbing alcohol on the rag. 2. Remove the cover from your dvd player by using a Phillips screw driver > Then push the eject button > Once the cd tray is out unplug the dvd player from the outlet > Take a few cu-tips and dip them lightly in a small amount of rubbing alcohol and with a small light source look in the carriage and you will see a small round glass looking bubble > This will be your laser optical lens, gently clean off the optical lens with the cu-tip moistened with alcohol > Repeat cleaning with a new cu-tip a few times > Dry off the optical lens with a dry cu-tip and let the dvd player air dry for 1 minute > Replace the cover and plug your dvd player back in and check to see if it plays the dvds.
You might want to invest in a optical lens cleaning disc which are cheap to buy. You should clean your optical lens at least once a month or as needed.
Hope this helps and let me know if it doesn't.

Does the dvd player do this with all your disks or just one in specific? Check the disks for scratches, you can clean them by taking a small amount of regular disk soap on your finger and add just a bit of water> run your finger over the disk until it is nice and soapy and then rinse the disk off really well>dry with a soft, non abrasive cloth and try to put the disk back in or you can go and buy a disk cleaner at walmart. If this does not work you will need to clean your optical lens inside your dvd player. To do this you take the screws out of the outer covering and lift it off> make sure you unplug the dvd player> open the dvd tray either manually or pushing the eject button before unplugging>look inside the inner casing and you will see a small lens looking device in the center (this is the optical reader lens)>take a cu tip and put a small amount of alcohol on it and gently wipe off the lens in a circular fashion>repeat this process until the cu tip comes out clean and there is no dirt on it>wait 3-4 minutes to let the alcohol evaporate before plugging back in and secure the outer cover back on and plug the dvd back in and see it that helped. If this does not, get back to me as we can explore further options.

Lulu1121 and guest, red means no charge and will remain red till its fully charge. Then it will turn to green. In fact, coby battery can be charge directly without the whole unit attached. But if on charge too long and still red, battery is dead, kaput, finish. some even show evidence when the casing is swollen...gel chemicals inside is swollen. The power supply that came with it is the only way you can use it...portability is out of the question.

Good Luck

DVD tray won't open/eject

I had a similar problem, and I took the player apart to find that there was a motor that has a snap-in connection to a circuit board and it was just disconnected. I reconnected it and it worked fine. There are quite a few philips head screws to remove to get into the case. It slides off the back. Once inside, it's very simple looking, it is really un-intimidating. You may have 4 more very small screws to remove directly on top of the DVD tray. If you need to take it off to see under the tray that is. I'd like to guess the problem is that the motor that ejects the tray is disconnected.
